The Palace of the Governors

Here tourists are buying Indian jewelry directly from the artists instead of in a store. Several years ago, while here in Santa Fe, I added a small bracelet to my collection of storytellers’ bracelets that I started about 20 years ago. My bracelets were made by Navajo, Pueblo, and Hopi artists who work in silver and some gold.

The bracelet I brought with me to Santa Fe this summer reenacts an emotional scene with two high mesas, a thunderstorm, and three horses, kicking.

Yesterday, during our seminar on Archaic Man, I drifted into a day dream and found myself in my bracelet, riding a swift steed toward a majestic mesa, far from the hauntingly beautiful Sangre de Cristo Mountains.

    This took me right back to this very place in time. I can almost smell the air! Lovely.

    Phew! I can hardly keep up.
    Now let’s have (day)dreams 2 and 3.

    Thanks for the images. I am trying to sail away on one of those clouds but can’t seem to get a foothold. Like reaching in to whip cream, I know it’s there but not to be possessed. Damn!

    Thanks Richard (for so much)
